Commencement And Transfer Assignment

Commencement and transfer Assignment in relation to the Technology and Construction Court

Where a claim has been issued at or transferred to the Technology and Construction Court in London, the Judge in Charge of the Technology and Construction Court (“the Judge in Charge”) shall assign it to a particular Technology and Construction Court judge. In general the assigned Technology and Construction Court judge who case manages a case will also try that case. Although this continuity of judge is regarded as important, it is sometimes necessary for there to be a change of assigned judge to case manage or try a case because all High Court Judges in the Queen’s Bench Division have other judicial duties. a) When a Technology and Construction Court case has been assigned to a named High Court judge, all communications about case management should be made to the assigned High Court judge’s clerk with email communications copied to the Technology and Construction Court Registry at Technology and Construction Court@hmcourts-service.gsi.gov.uk. (b) All communications in respect of the issue of claims or applications and all communications about fees, however, should be sent to the Technology and Construction Court Registry. (c) All statements of case and applications should be marked with the name of the assigned judge. There are currently full time Technology and Construction Court judges at Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds. There are principal Technology and Construction Court judges at other court centres outside London. Technology and Construction Court cases at these court centres are assigned to judges either (a) by direction of the full time or principal Technology and Construction Court judge or (b) by operation of a rota. It will not generally be appropriate for the Judge in Charge (who is based in London) to consider Technology and Construction Court cases which are commenced in, or transferred to, court centres outside London. Nevertheless, if any Technology and Construction Court case brought in a court centre outside London appears to require management and trial by a High Court judge, then the full time or principal Technology and Construction Court judge at that court centre should refer the case to the Judge in Charge for a decision as to its future management and trial. When a Technology and Construction Court case has been assigned to a named circuit judge at a court centre other than in London, all communications to the Technology and Construction Court about the case (save for communications in respect of fees) shall be made to that judge’s clerk. All communications in respect of fees should be sent to the relevant registry. All statements of case and applications should be marked with the name of the assigned judge.
